Capacity: The Posada Acuarela has 12 spacious rooms and can accommodate up to 16 anglers. In addition to double rooms, triple and quadruple rooms are available.
The Posada Acuarela has a Mediterranean and Caribbean feel and luminous areas decorated with an informal elegance which will make you feel at home in a house that opens its doors to the sea. The pleasant Solarium Hall with its warm atmosphere and exquisite cuisine radiates delicious aromas and tastes of the seas. Meals are wonderfully presented and prepared by the owner, Angelo Belvedere, originally from Sicily where his family owned a restaurant for generations. After your fishing day, you will see Angelo throw on a chef's jacket and prepare an amazing dinner, whipping up tuna carpaccio, penne in a spicy ragu sauce, and panna cotte. Posada Acuarela has the reputation of having the best meals on the island.
In 1990, Angelo came to Los Roques and fell in love with Maylin, a Venezuelan, who is now his wife and mother of three daughters. When he built his guesthouse, there were just a couple of other posadas. Although the posada is quite serene, shielded by aloe plants and palms, the walls are lively with the owner's paintings of curvy figures and colorful smears brushed on unframed canvases. It has ample common areas, a terrace, and WiFi. The rooms all have air conditioning, private safe, hot water, and en suite bathroom with shower.
